SAO PAULO, 22 Jan (Reuters) – Farmers in Brazil, who faced dry weather at the beginning of the current cycle, are preparing to harvest a record volume of 132, 2 million tons of soybeans in 2021, according to the average of estimates among 13 analysts in a Reuters poll.
In December, the consensus forecast pointed out that farmers would harvest 131, 79 million tons of soybeans.
The return of rains and good productivity in some areas has improved the outlook for this year’s soybean crops, the survey indicated on Friday.
